I’d never really even known of the existence of this British direct-to-consumer brand until I somehow found my way on to their site the other day. And I have to say that while there’s a lot on offer that’s younger and girlier than I go, there’s also a lot to covet. Like for instance this spiff boucle sweater jacket.
A denim cargo jacket that’s the just-right amount of oversized.
A cropped silk blend cardi that’d be ideal for pairing with dresses.
Such a pretty, feminine—but not too flouncy—dress, with flattering ruching in all the right places.
I’d wear this cashmere sweater vest layered over a button-down.
A nicely slouchy pair of carpenter jeans, in rigid denim.
And finally, just a cute and kind of perfect tee with a nice, deep V-neck.
I love the look and sleeves on that V-neck tee, but apparently it would KILL designers to make shirts longer. I am so over this cropped trend (and this one is far from the worst offender). All I’m asking for is one more inch!
I SO agree with you, Jen!
Love their shoes too! Although out of my price range.
Loving this post—new obsession! The cargo jacket in particular is speaking to me, although I’m out of jacket season in Florida for the next, oh, 8 months lol. And the prices are a tick higher than I’d like, although free international returns is a great bonus. I agree with Kathy, something about the cuts and colors speaks to me, too. Back to scrolling…
That dress is perfection.
I don’t know if I will ever stop being fascinated by people who don’t want to wear in their own pants. It probably creates jobs though, so that’s good. … … … These are some good knit pieces.
That’s just UK sizing – the numbers are 4 higher than the US.
Kim, your Instagram photos of your trip made it seem so relaxing and beautifully warm and exotic! Two quick side notes…yesterday’s posting didn’t show up until this morning––not certain if that’s me or the internet or the weather or…whatever, but thought I should mention it. Also, Aja Barber (I follow her on Instagram and I believe I “met” her on your EIF podcast, yes?) does a collab with the brand Lora Gene which is very size inclusive and turns out beautiful garments for all bodies. I have not ordered from them so can’t be more informative. If you want to be inspired about how to put an outfit together following Aja Barber’s postings of “getting dressed” will do that for you. She throws “what’s expected” out the window and dresses in comfortable clothing but looks gorgeous and fashionable. Goals!
I don’t see any trip photos! Is there a different IG account?
I pretty much only post in stories anymore, Mary Alice, so they’re gone in 24 hours.
I agree! I first learned about this brand on Andrea’s blog a few months ago- she received a catalog and featured some items in a post- I was obsessed. Something about their designs and cuts just speak to me. I’m about to order that fuschia dress- anyone have any knowledge of how their sizes run?
Wish they went beyond size 12.
On never mind, sorry! I looked at the size charts and they go to *UK* 16, which is, indeed, US 12. You were right, Kiki.
They actually go up to size 16, you just have to scroll sideways so it’s a bit hidden, the top of the range. I haven’t looked at the size charts, though, IME UK brands fun smaller than US.
Great looks!! The styling seems very important. In each example, a key accessory makes the item for sale great—the graceful sandals, the oversized sunglasses, the 70s platform shoes. The accessory is the secret sauce. One without the other could actually result in a ho-hum outfit and money wasted. Look around your closet and see if you can recreate the complete effect. If not, go the extra yard and make a purchase—that’s what keeps a look from being boring, friends! I want to subtly turn heads and be admired! My 2¢.
Swoon, that denim cargo jacket is pretty much 100% my ideal type of jacket.
I just ordered a fab pair of trousers from them but sizing is horrible, a 10 is equivalent to a 6 US or so.
I love every single item posted here. Thanks for the great eye, Kim. I feel inspired.
Interesting I’ve been a fan for a while, and young and girlie and never terms I thought applied. I always thought of them as what the Ann Taylor so my youth would /should look like now if they had stayed true to their roots. Showing that fashion really is in the eye of the beholder
